Spotlight on...Isata

Part of the London Mozart Players 2020/21 Season

Add to my Calendar 26-06-2021 16:00 26-06-2021 18:00 36 Spotlight on...Isata Charismatic young pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason, the eldest of the Kanneh-Mason siblings, and acclaimed conductor Stephanie Childress, join LMP for a concert programme that fizzes with life-affirming exuberance. Beethoven’s majestic Symphony No.2 takes the orchestra on a journey of expression and invention from its opening through to the ravishing finale – complete with a magnificent coda that ends the work with a flourish of timpani- and trumpet-laden triumph. But the spotlight is on our soloist Isata Kanneh-Mason, who performs Mendelssohn’s first piano concerto, a showcase of captivating melodies and glittering passagework that will highlight the prodigious talent of our virtuoso performer. A BBC Young Musician finalist, four-time winner of the Royal Academy Iris Dyer Piano Prize (among many other prizes) and multi-scholarship winner, Isata is much in demand in concert halls around the UK and abroad, and LMP musicians are hugely looking forward to performing alongside her. ‘She is a pianist who makes lines sing beautifully and virtuosic passages dance, finding intimacy and eloquence at telling moments…’ – BBC Music Magazine. There will be two concerts on the same day to accommodate social distancing. This concert will be filmed for later release on the LMP website. Cadogan Hall, London DD/MM/YYYY
